Poike Peninsula is also the location of the legendary Ana o Keke or White Virgin?s Cave. The cave is tricky to find but with persistence and patience you can locate the cave, if you are lucky, brave, willing to walk across unmarked land and lucky again. We managed to find the entrance but only with the help of a local who, rather begrudgingly, pointed us in the right direction, but reaching the cliff we were unwilling to risk the steep and risky descent in blustery conditions. Shame because we missed what are supposedly impressive petroglyphs etched on the cave walls but we really were not comfortable descending to the cave entrance in what were very windy conditions. Even on a calm day I?m not sure we would have chanced it!
